Food Pantry

Collection containers for canned and nonperishable foods are available at both campuses. Grocery bags are packed and distributed every other week from the East Campus. We continue to distribute around 400 grocery bags annually to our neighbors in need.  We try to provide a variety of food in each bag including protein, vegetables, fruits, and carbohydrates.

Two ways to help!!

1.  Pack A Bag  - refer to the list below for donation ideas

2.  Donate money to feed a family for a week.  The Estimated cost of a bag of groceries is $20.00.
